Along with debuting the first trailers for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker and the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, the third-biggest surprise to come out of Disney’s D23 Expo was the trailer for Jeff Goldblum’s new travel show. Yeah, a bit of a step away from fantasy space dramas, isn’t it?
The World According To Jeff Goldblum is a 12-part series from National Geographic following the eccentric actor as he travels the globe discovering and learning about things that most intrigue him. The Jurassic Park actor discusses and investigates his favourite denim and sneakers, while also researching ice cream, tattoos, synchronised swimming and line dancing.
“I’m not here to be didactic or professorial in any way,” Goldblum says in the trailer. “I know nothing – that’s the premise. I’m a humble student and, in fact, kind of a late bloomer… a late Gold-bloomer.”
The show is sure to appeal to anyone who enjoys a bit of Goldblum in their life – which is more or less everyone, really – with the actor having become somewhat of a cultural phenomenon over the years thanks to his eclectic fashion sense, unique film choices, extensive vocabulary and charming personality.
The World According To Jeff Goldblum will air on Disney+ once the streaming platform launches on November 12.
